. mario monti says german chancellor angela merkel doesn't want italy's center left party to win the elections this weekend. the outgoing prime minister said merkel feared a consolidation of parties from the left, especially in an election year for her. the german leader has so far refrained from commenting on the election. what does all of this mean? julia joins us now from milan. julia, i have to confess, i don't really understand what monti's point is here. >> well, you know, we have to give it a bit of context, kelly. this was in response to something berlusconi said about the possibility that mario monti had already signed an agreement with the democratic left party, the democracy party mr. bersani with the agreement with angela merkel. i don't think mario monti has hidden the fact that he's concerned about the influence, particularly the power of the union on the democratic party. if we look on the german side, the foreign minister said what they want ultimately is a party that's going to continue with the reforms, that's going to continue with the fiscal consolidation. i'm
this is a must read for angela merkel, nicolas sarkozy and dave cameron. now, in my way of thinking he left out some southern european countries that might also have gotten something out of it. but it's easy to see why, you know, after you get a read of it, you know, why so many people need to know what bill knows and how he knew it and what he did with it. in terms of doing it. now, everybody knows that bill spent 53 years at citigroup. now, i've heard over 50, bill, i've heard 55 today, and so we're going to go with over 50. that's a considerable amount of time. and when you think about that time frame and going back, he was a devout disciple of our late and great chairman of, walter riston. walter, again, when you talk about bill and walter, you talk about icons in this field. now, every single treasury secretary would come to see walter riston. and there were problems in argentina, there were problems in your bay, there was problems in peru, there was problems in brazil, there was problems in mexico, there was problems in jamaica, there was problems in panama, and then we go over here, and
